GPB Sports is heading to Cartersville this week as the top ranked, undefeated, and defending champion Purple Hurricanes take on region opponent Central Carroll.
Cartersville is led by quarterback, Trevor Lawrence, who is the top ranked junior quarterback in the country. Jackie Brittain will fill viewers in on how Trevor’s hair has its own Twitter account.
Jackie will also have the inspirational story of Garrett Geros who lost part of his leg in an automobile accident, but still suits up for the Purple Hurricanes and doesn’t let anything slow him down.
Matt Stewart will have the latest on recruiting including the story of a Cartersville quarterback, (not Trevor Lawrence) who was offered a college scholarship when he was in the 7th grade.
They will also talk with Central Carroll head coach Larry Kesler and Cartersville coach Joey King. And if you have never seen a game from Weinman Stadium it is quite an event. The students get into their cheering section hours before kickoff to cheer on their team. It is quite an enthusiastic atmosphere.
So its Central Carroll, who won back to back state titles in 1986 and 1987, taking on the three-time state champion Purple Hurricanes of Cartersville. TV coverage kicks off with the GPB All Access Pass Pregame Show at seven o’clock on GPB.
Our advise to you: go to Weinman Stadium, listen on AM 1450 and FM 100.3 WBHF, and record the GPB broadcast.
